Default RE: IS this FAIR?????

The referenced thread is informative of what the MLS member will be doing... there is nothing political in it nor religious. Although it mentions a specific religion, it does not espouse that religion to the exclusion of any other.

If you were to be taking a long sabatical from the MLS fora to hit the campaign trail either FOR or AGAINST some political agency/person then there would be nothing wrong with stating that fact, but if you were to include specific references meant to promote the political agenda you espouse, then that would invite rebuttal from those that dissagree with you on any points you make. That discussion will very quickly lead to anger and the loss of friendships.

As to whether one SHOULD post ones vacation plans/sabatical tour/etc. outside of the Large Scale world is maybe somewhat questionable, but we are supposedly "friends" here and it is sometimes nice to know what our friends are doing with the rest of their lives, so it is tolerated to some extent.

Of course this is NOT "my" forum/website/whatever, and I don't make the rules, nor do I have any influence over what rules are strictly enforced and which ones are relaxed from time to time. This is just "MY" take on the situation.

To me the big difference is how well you know the poster, if it was a club memeber it is fine.
If its a stranger to you then...
Just like a post of a death, more for informational so he can help if need be.
I just glance at it and go on.
Its a whole lot better than those 20 page your all wrong threads.

Well, I've been a member of MLS since about the start. The post is *surely not* train related!

There is a HUGE difference between that post and the one that was recently locked..
if you dont understand the difference, im not sure I can explain it to you!

I am in favor of not allowing the first kind, at all, ever, but the second kind is perfectly fine..
I think most understand the difference..

I am currently on Roatan Island Honduras after we completed our Humanitarian visit to Guatemala.

Sorry that I offended some people.

I have re-read the original post and find it hard to imagine how it could be offensive.

Yes, I did reference it as Off Topic.

I have seen in the past that there are other posters who have referenced their faith. That is all I was doing. I just thought it might be of interest to some people.


It was not my intention to offend some of you.

It is just like my Nephew who is a lawyer. I happened to forward a political cartoon which was very carefully identified in the subject line.

He opened it and was offended. He called me and told me to never send something so offensive again.

My reply was that he would not have been offended had he simply hit the delete key when he saw the subject title.

So once again, if I offended you, then your sensitivities are too acute.


Rarely do I ever get such a response to train related questions!

I'm amazed alot of what "offendeds" people. what ever happen with forgiving someone instead of giving up totally on the relationship??
Did someone do something SO bad that you have to leave or reject them in light of years of companionship??

Thats why I have NOT left MLS..
